Brown Advisory Student-Managed Investment Fund

James Price IV, a former partner and managing director of Alex. Brown & Sons, funded the program to give Washington College’s business students an edge in launching careers in finance.

“When I finished college, I had no real-world knowledge of the investment world,” Price said. “When I started at Alex. Brown & Sons, I had great mentors but, as I look back, I always wished I had started with more knowledge of investments.”
